Currently, minority groups such as African Americans are underprivileged in society. One major reason this is true is because they are raised in poor environments with bad schools, causing lower achievement, preventing them from being sent to good colleges that would get them out of poverty. Thus, the lack of college admissions creates a vicious cycle of poverty.

Our current way of solving this is to dispose talented students from majority groups from the admission process to include less talented, but impoverished, groups of African American students. This is why Asians and White people often need more SAT points to be selected for college than Black students. [1] This comes at the cost of not allowing good majority students into college.

My solution to this would be to force students of majority groups like White people and Asians to take lead or other neurotoxin pills that would drop their intelligence to levels closer to underprivileged people who have higher lead intake due to living in less desirable neighbourhoods closer to factories and having less access to high-quality food. This would mean we could stop doing affirmative action while still having a proportionate number of minorities in school.

You might be wondering about the backlash this proposal would cause. This proposal would legitimize racists' fears that minorities are being treated better, causing racist hate crimes and riots. However, these fears are already being legitimized by academic affirmative action.

You might also be thinking that this violates the rights of majority groups. Well, academic affirmative action is already doing the same thing.

You might also be thinking that this would lower the skills of college graduates. Well, academic affirmative action is already doing the same thing.

This solution is better than the status quo because affirmative action unfairly disqualifies majority groups. Why do that when you could make that disqualification fair through lead pills?

So if you're the type of person who supports affirmative action, you should also support mandatory lead pills.

Or at least a mandatory chip in your forehead that throttles your intelligence, with the throttling going down as the underprivileged minority receives more privileges.

"We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered." -MLK Jr

Except racial-based affirmative action doesn't help take minorities out of poverty, because the majority of minorities who get into college are rich, and it doesn't take into consideration socioeconomic status. Thus, it creates racial injustices without benefitting poor minorities.

So your solution is hold everybody back for the sake of 1, rather that try to get that 1 to prosper? You want to purposely lower the intelligence of a nation just because 1 group is lagging behind?
